Critical Security Update for Microsoft Windows Released

Microsoft has just released a patch to correct a critical vulnerability in Windows systems. The vulnerability applies to current versions of Windows and the update should be applied as soon as possible. Of course, systems not protected by a corporate firewall and/or up-to-date antivirus software are at highest risk. Compromised websites can infect unpatched computers. At least one known worm has been detected which exploits this vulnerability.

This patch can be applied via normal Microsoft update procedures you may already have in place. [more]
